Bruins Sign Defenseman Nathan McIver and Goalie Nolan Schaefer


The Boston Bruins continue to make moves this offseason.

On Monday, the B’s signed defenseman Nathan McIver to a two-year deal and goaltender Nolan Schaefer to a one-year contract.

McIver played 44 games for the AHL’s Manitoba Moose (affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks) last year and scored one goal and added four assists. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound defenseman made his NHL debut in the 2006-07 season for the Canucks and has played 36 career NHL games for the Canucks and Anaheim Ducks, totaling one point and 95 penalty minutes.

Schaefer, the younger brother of former Bruins forward Peter Schaefer, is a 30-year-old veteran who played his collegiate hockey at nearby Providence College, where he set the school record with 2,848 saves in 99 games.

Schaefer, the 166th overall pick by the San Jose Sharks in the 2000 NHL entry draft, is 5-1 with a 1.87 goals-against average and .920 save percentage in seven career games.

Last season, Schaefer made 22 appearances for HC CSKA Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia, going 6-10-1 with a 2.66 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.

Financial terms of each player’s deal were not disclosed.
